Now onto the third of the four raised beds. The last few years I’ve squeezed in six cauliflower plants with the broccoli. This year I devoted the first raised bed entirely to broccoli.
Since there are so many brassicas I enjoy growing and eating, I’m devoting the third raised bed to cauliflower and other brassicas. The downside is that my brassica rotation goes from a four years to two years. Two purple sprouting broccoli will again go in 15 gallon pots since they get so large.
Here’s the rundown:
3 Brussels Sprouts ‘Long Island Improved’
See my earlier post Planting, Growing and Harvesting Brussels Sprouts
6 Red Cabbage 'Red Acre’
6 Cauliflower 'Snowball’
6 Purple Cauliflower 'Graffiti’
6 Red Kohlrabi 'Winner’
Can you imagine this…
…becoming this? Follow along in the Second Season Garden.
